John Frame has written a masterpiece with this work. When I think of a book on philosophy, exciting is rarely used to describe it. Yet, I have to say, I was truly exciting to received this book for reviewing. I’ve been helped by Frame’s writing in the past and was pleasantly surprised when I saw this book coming out soon after his systematic theology textbook was out. How does John Frame manages to write so much so fast? I’ve yet to completed this book, but so far based on whatever I’ve read. I’m glad to say this book is a book that any beginners in philosophy can use. Frame takes the readers through the various philosophies and philosophers of the different ages. He explores what they teach and more importantly, examines what the bible has to say about their philosophies. The first chapter by frame is excellent and ought to be a required reading for any christian taking philosophy. He examines and defines the terms he will use within the book, and introduces the distinctive presuppositional apologetics perspective to the readers. He explains to the readers that different between the christian and non-christian understanding of philosophies. Having done that, Frame then guides the readers along starting with the greek philosophy. What i found extremely helpful was how Frame covers some philosophers that are not often covered in other textbooks. This includes the early church fathers and the recent christian philosophers. Being a christian philosophy book, Frame certainly focuses on the christians philosophers. But Frame also interacts with the big guns of philosophy, such as Descartes, Kant, Nietzsche and Wittgenstein. Readers will also be pleased to know that this book complements the RTS course on philosophy taught by Frame, which is available free online. Frame has given christians a good alternative textbook on philosophy, albeit it can be skewed towards the christian side. It is still an excellent textbook for anyone who wants to hear the christian perspective on philosophy. This book is certainly worth the price you pay for it. Recommend for any christian who is interested in philosophy and also for pastors who have people in their congregation who studies philosophies in college. You will find help in this book.
